California Joe is a character created by Orange County magician Richard Ribuffo. Drawing inspiration from the Indiana Jones series, Richard designed a show that will teach children that nothing is impossible and to value the journey as much as the destination.
Richard has performed magic for hundreds of schools, birthday parties and community events. He has been hired by major corporations such as Petco, Hooters Restaurant, Borders Bookstore and Muvico Theaters. He is also a magician member of the Academy of Magic Arts at the World Famous Hollywood Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA.
For the past 10 years Richard performed Walk-Around magic for the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival as their lovable Court Jester in South Florida. He is now a resident of Anaheim, California.
